There are several new polls out on Thursday, the day after the third and final presidential debate and they show that it's still a tight race for the White House.

Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton has been gaining ground in national polls recently.

The polls do not take into account respondents' reaction to the final debate held Wednesday night in Las Vegas. It will take several days before polling can be conducted to reflect the impact of that debate.

A new Investor's Business Daily/TechnoMetrica Market Intelligence poll gives Clinton a slight lead over Republican nominee Donald Trump. In a head-to-head matchup, Clinton leads Trump, 43.1% to 41%. But when the two leading third-party candidates are thrown into the mix, Trump is in the lead by just one percentage point.

The latest Rasmussen Reports White House Watch survey gives Trump a slight lead with likely voters, with 43% support over Clinton's 40%.

And an updated Los Angeles Times/USC Tracking poll has both candidates basically tied, with Trump at 44.4% and Clinton with 43.8%.
